[applause] i know we are concerned about sexual assault and rape and people assaulting women and children -- i know that. most of the people in prison as sex offenders are not those people. i call them romeo and juliet's. he is 19 and she is 16 or she is 19 and he is 16. that is the most of the mark. let's face it -- we should know, especially in san francisco, that as human beings, we are not really comfortable with sex. some of us do not even know who we are, right? from day to day, right? you know, i mean, sex is a very complicated issue. the idea that sexual behavior and people's aberrations with it or problems with it or confusions should send them to present for life sentences. in wisconsin, they have the same thing in iowa and illinois -- actually have built pr
dozen crackdown. now, the question is, we're going along, china and russia so far not going along but it would be more than a no-fly zone, right? >>guest: russia, it is in russia's and to have higher oil prices. they don't pay $105 or $120 because they produce billion barrels which they sell. russia will not play. no-fly zone or u.s. attack on qadaffi would put the rebels in place and maybe free flowing oil would happen again and prices would retreat. $4 a barrel higher today, maybe it is back down so russia likes this. >>neil: what if muammar qaddafi makes good on threats to wipe out the rebels? the air raids would be moot. >>guest: they are moot until there are other protesters and another country says what about us? the uprising started in tunisia, spread to egypt, and then to libya, from country to country in the middle east and it will land itself in a major oil producer and prices will sky rock. $3.6 5 average for gas right now, how about $8 a gallon if there is a major civil war in the middle east? will we fight the battles? we can't do that. >>neil: the only direction is u
to russia because he has the situation to deal with. how prepared are we? how involved might the united states become in the action in libya? look, over the last week plans were developed, where the administration, both the president asked the pentagon to come up with plans to help enforce and assist in a no fly zone if this resolution was going to pass. they knew the wording and the question, how are we going to assist, clear, over the last couple weeks? we have moved assets into the mediterranean, naval assets in particular. so there is obviously something, a role they're going to play. we know about the logistical role and intelligence role they're playing which is the flying of the awacs planes over libya to identify targets and confirm where these folks are but the question is, are there going to be more action that u.s. military assets are going to take beyond intelligence gathering and i think we'll find out more in the next few hours. the delay of secretary gates' trip to russia tells you that. >> president obama actually addressed the crisis in libya there in brazil when he was
could soon be doing more business in russia. russian president dmitry medvedev met with goldman chief lloyd blankfein in moscow today. the topic-- goldman's possible participation in a direct investment fund aimed at attracting foreign capital to russia. in the past, investors stayed away from russia because of rampant government corruption and red tape. when it comes to education, states should pay more attention to productivity. so says tonight's commentator, jamie merisotis, president and c.e.o. of the lumina foundation. >> america is home to some of the most productive and successful businesses in the world. recent government data shows that u.s. productivity is at the highest level in many years. but one place where productivity is lagging is in the hallowed halls of our great colleges and universities. now, productivity may not be a word you automatically associate with higher education. and yet, productivity is consistent with the loftier goals of academia. higher education productivity is about making the system more efficient, more innovative, and more cost-effective. we need
likely to use their veto, china and russia for various reasons. russia has very good relationships or had very good relationships with libya, has a lot of investment down there with the gas industry. the french diplomats who have been very aggressive pushing this resolution seem quite confident that their resolution will pass, that there will be no veto, so that would mean that probably china and russia would abstain their vote or something like that. it's, like i said, the security council, so it's not over until it's over. >> germany is being very cautious in terms of this no-fly zone over libya. why do you think that is? >> the germans have been more than cautious now. the german foreign minister says there is not going to be any german soldiers in libya including no german soldiers in a no-fly zone. the germans are cautious and hesitant when it comes into military intervention in the country. they are now in afghanistan, that's not go very well, especially with the public. they're hesitant to open up a second front. on top of that, the germans aren't convinced that a no-fly zpone woul

if they want. in russia they asked to fax them the first page of his passport while he was in siberia in jail because they weren't sure that was him. even if you look at egypt, what happened there which helped to organize the protests, sometime in october or november, that group was the activator because facebook had to come up as a quick fix. >> the very facebook that helped launch the tunisian revolution. >> egyptian revolution. again, all i'm saying is that there are many cases -- looking at that group in egypt, it was clear it was a political group that sought to oppose mubarak. i don't see why facebook has to enforce that policy. it's not that they would have trouble with securities and exchange commission if they don't enforce it. there are ways to push companies to behave responsibly. >> i want to follow-up on the secretary of state's remarks. the u.s. has given some funding and thanked twitter and asked twitter not to go down for repairs during a crucial time earlier in the middle east. it's been a supporter of some of these things. should they be discriminatory and provide things for

watches and warnings not only for japan, as you can imagine, but russia, japan, the philippines, indonesia, guam and the u.s. state of hawaii as well. this is evolving into an international event. dramatic footage, homes and buildings just being washed away as tsunami just -- literally a 13-foot tsunami engulfs that country. >> take a look at this water damage here as you see it plowing over buildings. you see homes, businesses, cars absolutely being caught up in this flood. we've all, of course, been familiar with the damage that a tsunami can cause. right now there is a warning about another tsunami that could hit. this one was 19 feet and apparently there are more that could hit. >> right now we're getting information that this is the biggest earthquake since 1995. the biggest earthquake since 1995. it struck at about 2:46 japan time, shortly after 1:00 a.m. eastern time. again, 8.8, that is a monster earthquake. already word from japanese officials that they're going to -- already in the process now of accepting foreign assistance because the scope of this is going to be unbelievable.
coastal areas of russia, marcus island, northern marianas, guam, wake island and taiwan, please do not go near the waters. move to higher ground as soon as possible. you're watching nhk world and a major earthquake hit japan friday afternoon. this happened about an hour and 15, 20 minutes ago. japan's meteorological agency says the earthquake measured 8.4. the agency issued a tsunami warning for japan's pacific cost. in northern japan tsunami waves of up to 4 meters were observed soon after the quake. the agency is warning the tsunami could be between 6 and 10 meters. you're seeing some of the tsunami damage so far in miyagi prefecture in the sendai area where some of the homes and farms have been flooded when the tsunami went upstream a river. according to the transport ministry, the international airport has reopened two of its four runways. international airport has reopened two of its four runways. they had earlier closed all. they have reopened two of its four runways. the japan road traffic information center, japan road information center, and police say express ways around
strategy. now, let me turn to europe and russia since our plans were architecture and have gotten so much attention there. we have no more important relationship than with nato allies. that relationship continues to grow. when i first started working with relationships in 1997, the allies were skeptical to say the least, but there's been a huge change in europe's attitude and nato's attitude. i've been em -- impressed with my counterparts and discussions with them in our nato meetings by how much and how quickly they embraced territorial missile defense as a mission. there are a few key components to our approach applying to the ark architecture in europe. we want to protect all of euro, not just some of europe. we want our european allies and friends to buy into the european safety adapted approach, and it's not something we want to impose on them. that's just not what friends doment finally, we have started discussing potential defense cooperation between the united states and russia and nato and russia. we want russia in the missile defense tent rather than outside. last year in novemb
would be. he said islamic terrorists. hostile members of the chinese military. or groups in russia. who are the best positioned in the economic battle space. now, here is where this thing doesn't feel right to me. this report came out back in 2009. the only reason why we're seeing it now is because someone in the d.o.d. thought that this report should be brought to public attention. it was made in 2009. the d.o.d. thought it should be brought to your attention. that alone to me is the biggest warning bell here. it should put your radar up, at least maybe say maybe i should read this and look into it. why should it be brought to your attention now? well, let me ask you, what was the end goal of osama bin laden? easy to say he wanted to destroy the united states, but that wasn't it. it was destroy the western way of life and collapse us. back in the late 1990s when i was warning new yorkers that there would be blood and bodies and buildings in the streets, i said within 30 years -- little did i know it would be within five -- i warned people about osama bin laden, because i actually read
import positions vis-a-vis the countries brazil, russia, china and what important part that could play in our recovery? .. it conceals one important point which is british businesses have been more at a venue would suggest. i think british business for the larger companies tend to go into india and brazil and china and senate joint ventures and factors of their own bear to serve the local market for a variety of reasons. for new reasons we needn't go into today. i grit my honorable friend would be good if we could help small for immediate we don't have the capability set up on the other side of the world to export generic term. whi now, the devaluation, which n veened over a year ago now has given us a nasty result, whichur is a much higher inflation rate but it is given us one very pleasant result which is it is very easy to export out of the british now because british industry is so much more competitive. we should have that on our site. i think paradoxically british businesses now in the manufacturing sector it's very close. so they are tending to collect a bit more revenue and bri
a quarter of the total eu gas supply. sen countries out of the twen block are totally dependent on russia for gas. they turned the gas and oil off. so why was it that reagan warned that we should never allow a pipe line in europe. what was it he said. they would control all of europe. look at pipe lines and map. there are the pipe lines and all going this direction. who do you think controls these people? who? if libya fails, and they are not counting on saudi arabia because saudi arabia is worried about failure. they get their oil from libya right now. it comes up and goes in all over europe. but if that fails and saudi arabia fails, i guess they have russia to count on. is that good for them? multibillionaire tboone pickens said about america. there is a big energy table we don't have a share there and the hall and saudies tell you what you are going to pay for it. well, is there any country that is preparing or looking to the future and doing what we used to do? yes, russia and let's look at china. here's china. they are the 24 countries that china has oil interest in. you think they a
